K's Easy Weeknight BBQ Shrimp

It's been all the buzz around the neighborhood ... the oh so delish BBQ shrimp recipe that neighbor friend K shared with the gals around the hood.  For one reason or another, I continually misplaced this recipe (a few times) and never got around to making this dish.  Well, when the raves just kept coming in and ya'll know this southern girl hasn't met a shrimp I don't like, so I begged very organized friend J send me the recipe again (for like the 3rd time).  And FINALLY this week... I first hand had the tasty pleasure of enjoying this fab dish.

Friend K kept telling me how easy the recipe was to make and she was indeed right!  It looks and tastes like a culinary masterpiece, but it's easy as pie to whip together.  This makes it the perfect easy weeknight meal to throw together with some cheesy grits and crusty bread; or impress some guests with a weekend meal that puts together in a flash!

And without further delay, here's the super secret, super fab, super easy recipe for K's BBQ Shrimp.  Ya'll enjoy!
